Warjuna – Mrithasu Rising Book 1 by Krishnaraj – Book Review


When you read a book that has characters picked up from an epic, the first reaction is that the book will be another angle to that epic. That’s exactly what I thought when I received this book. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it was not the case.

This is truly an exceptional work by the author! Krishnaraj has created a completely new story, a new world by taking two characters from Mahabharata.

Blurb –


Civilizations have once again emerged from the ruins of Pralaya, and with a new dawn arrive new ambitions. Ordained by fate, several legions of a ruthless clan have been reported to be seen marching into the boundaries of Bharata. The origins of the Hayacree are unknown, yet their intent is evident: to create a new world order.

The tides of war will bring forth valiant men and women of great fortitude and a divine force to unite them all against the strong will of the enemy. While the matters of kings and kingdoms are to be shouldered by a young prince of Wagharr, a supernatural alliance of Mahayogis and Suparnas will need to travel beyond the realm of man to discover the architect behind the Hayacree invasion.

The hunt for the real enemy will lead them to an expanse invisible to the human eye.

In its depth lies an evil waiting to be discovered, waiting to rise.


My Review –


Arjuna is the young price of Wagharr, a land of brave and strong mercenaries. His land was invaded by the Hayacree and he was assigned the task to save his people by taking them to far north of Bharatha. Arjuna’s journey takes him to various places and he gets to meet Kanha, the prince of Dwarka.

Author has taken a lot of relationship and emotional elements from Mahabharata, like Kanha’s love for children, the relationship between Draupadi and Arjuna.

The author has beautifully depicted and described the characters. Every character has a significant place in the book.

It is a fast paced book which will completely grab your attention till the end. As it progresses, it gets more and more intriguing.

The book is the beginning of the series of Warjuna. I’m not sure how many books has the author decided in the series but I’m really excited for the next one to come out. This book really leaves you with a lot of questions which you just cannot ignore and you, like me, will wait for the next one to come out.

It is really an amazing read. I feel it can be converted to a movie, something like the ‘Lord of the Rings’, the Indian version.

I would recommend this book to all you like epic fiction. It is truly an unputdownable.

My rating 5/5.


‘I received a copy from Author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.’
